The Prime Directive: The cornerstone of Federation law when it comes to interacting with other cultures. How did this important directive come into being, and what were the intentions of the original authors of Starfleet's overriding policy? We journey back to the early days of the Federation to find out!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by Earl Grey's Justin Oser to talk about Christopher L. Bennett's latest novel, Enterprise: Rise of the Federation: Patterns of Interference. We discuss the dictator Maltuvis, the ultimate Prime Directive debate, a strange new world, freedom and truth, Section 31's fatal flaw, what's in store for Trip, and Archer's beagle companion, Porthos.

In the news segment, we talk about the recently revealed (and incorrect) cover for David Mack's upcoming Titan novel, Fortune of War.
